The Tennis Bubble

This is the story of a talented tennis player and that of the many tennis families who make the annual trek from wherever in the world they stem from to the Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy in Bradenton, Florida. This is not the story of an already known quantity-a Roger Federer, Pete Sampras, Bjorn Borg, or Andre Agassi-this is the story of an ordinary budding tennis hopeful and her very supportive family who has always assigned too much importance to tennis. This is the story of an adolescent girl with all the tools to become a first-class professional tennis player. This is the story of devastating serves, rifle-crack forehands, pin-point passing shots and Andre Agassi-like angles that pull the opponent right off the court; of serenity and courage in the face of cheating and frustration. In brief, this is a very normal story for all you hopefuls out there-both players and their families-and an idea of what it takes from all concerned to try and build a champion.

When is tennis ball a balloon ready to be pricked?
